        Africae. Descripto IX. lib. absoluta

      Lugd. Batav [Leiden]: Elzevir [Elsevier,], 1632 2 volumes in one paginated consecutively. 800+[16 index] pages. Small duodecimo (4 1/2 x 2 1/2") bound in full leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine, heal and for edge pages marbled. Originally published in 1550. In the seventeenth century, at the zenith of Dutch mercantilism, Leiden was an international university center, and the pocket editions produced by the Dutch firm of Elzevir, at a standard price of one guilder for 500 small duodecimo pages, became known throughout Europe.Joannes Leo Africanus was a Moorish diplomat and author who is best know for his book Descrittione dell'Africa describing the geography of North Africa. Most of what is known about his life is gathered from autobiographical notes in his own work. He was born in Granada around 1494 but his family moved to Fez soon after his birth. As a young man he accompanied an uncle on a diplomatic mission to the Maghreb, reaching as far as the city of Timbuktu, then part of the Songhai Empire. In 1517 when returning from a diplomatic mission to Constantinople on behalf of the Sultan of Fez Muhammad II he found himself in Rosetta during the Ottoman conquest of Egypt. He continued his journey through Cairo and Aswan and across the Red Sea to Arabia. On his way back to Tunis in 1518 he was captured by Spanish corsairs. He was taken to Rome and initially imprisoned in the Castel Sant' Angelo but when his captors realized his importance he was freed and presented to Pope Leo X. Leo Africanus left Rome and spent the next three or four years traveling in Italy. While staying in Bologna he wrote an Arabic-Hebrew-Latin medical vocabulary, of which only the Arabic part has survived, and a grammar of Arabic of which only an eight-page fragment has survived. He returned to Rome in 1526 under the protection of Pope Clement VII. According to Leo, he completed his manuscript on African geography in the same year. The work was published in Italian with the title Della descrittione dell?Africa et delle cose notabili che iui sono, per Giovan Lioni Africano in 1550 by the Venetian publisher Giovanni Battista Ramusio. The book proved to be extremely popular and was reprinted five times. It was also translated into other languages. French and Latin editions were published in 1556 while an English version was published in 1600 with the title A Geographical Historie of Africa. The Latin edition, which contained many errors and mistranslations, was used as the source for the English translation.Condition:Leather chipped away at front heal hinge heavily rubbed with cracked hinges, some worming affecting the back leather, corners bumped and rubbed through else a good copy.

        His Wife - with the Addition of New Characters and Many Other Wittie Conceits Never Before Printed

      Printed By R.B. For Robert Allot, Paul's Churchyard,London 1632 - Quite an early issue of the celebrated poem by the Seventeenth Century English poet, essayist and courtier of King James I. To cut a long story short, Overbury was imprisoned in the Tower of London by King James for disrespect in 1613 - and slowly poisoned under the orders of Lady Essex, mistress of Lord Rochester . As Robert Carr, soon to become favourite to the King, Rochester was originally Overbury's best friend, but they fell out over the latter's affair with the youthful and already infamous countess of Essex who was led to believe that the poem had been written to open Lord Rochester's eyes to her defects.The murder conspiracy was uncovered after Overbury's death and Lady Essex was brought to trial with other conspirators, whom she had enlisted.Her accomplices were executed but she was pardoned, although she had pleaded guilty.This edition of one of the most widely popular books of the 17th century - its popularity hugely boosted by the notoriety of the whole messy business - contains numerous elegies to the unfortunate poet as well as the lengthy essay, entitled 'Characters or wittie descriptions of the properties of sundry persons,'much of which was not written by Overbury himself.There are 76 characters described here from every level of society. Characterisations include a good woman, a Chamber- maid and milk- maid as well as a tinker, hypocrite and sailor, and even a French cook and a drunken Dutchman.This copy includes other essay fragments - spurious additions to the snowball of Overbury's works.The additional writings gathered here include:'Newes from any whence or old truth under a fuppofall of Noveltie'; 'Paradoxes as they were fpoken in a Maske, and prefented before his Maiefty at White-Hall' and 'The Mountebankes receipts' - the first being an approved recipe against feminine melancholy, and finally three songs. This collection is presented here in a neat and attractive 20th century craft binding in brown full calf leather.Entitled 'Overbury's Characters', It has gilt lettering and pleasing blind decoration on spine and nicely designed blind decoration on both front and back covers.The original text is bound up complete with title page of 'His Wife' and, is unpaginated but, including sundry writings with their title pages,consists of 300 or so pages.Older endpapers have been used to blend in with the age of the book and these have become slightly foxed, while there is a slight split down the joint fron the top edge on the rear endpaper.Head of spine is a little rubbed and there is just a little more rubbing along the outer joint nearer the tail; the word 'characters' in the second line of the title is tilted slightly down; the gilt on some of the letters is a little smudged; the initial title page is slightly frayed at the foredge with owner's inked initials at head and several other neat ink annotations, two of which appear to have been unsuccessfully blotted out, because although they has been covered, the lettering remains distinct. the text pages following are generally clean and in good condition for their age with just occasional foxing, light creasing and some darkening - mainly seen at page edges, but the text block is particularly darkened and stained on the top edge.The paper and print quality varies - some leaves are of a heavier weight, while a few appear light and rather fragile; the print on a few pages is pale, while on others it is particularly bold; just a few sheets are slightly nicked or frayed at the foredge. Despite faults noted, overall the binding is sound and bright, while the interior tex is in in good condition for its age. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Christian Policie: or, The Christian Common-Wealth. Published for the good of kings, and princes, and such as are in authoritie under them, and trusted with state affaires: as also for all true hearted subjects. Written in Spanish, and translated into English.

      London: printed by Thomas Harper, for Richard Collins, and are to be sold at his shop, 1632 - Quarto (212 × 168 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, yapp edges, tawed skin ties (all but one broken), both covers with gilt initials "Sr T B" as supralibros. A little dampstaining to final quire and rear cover, else a very good, fresh copy with ample margins. Complete with first and last blank leaves; in this issue, the title is a cancel. First edition in English; rare. The translation is actually by the Hispanophile James Mabbe, though Edward Blount, as was his habit, signs the dedication as if he were its translator. (A variant issue of the same year has Blount's name instead of Richard Collins's in the imprint: the two booksellers were close neighbours in St Paul's Churchyard.) Edward Blount [Blunt] (bap. 1562, d. in or before 1632) is best known to posterity as the chief publisher of the first Shakespeare folio (with commendatory verses by his friends Mabbe and Leonard Digges). In other respects too, he was the most important English publisher of the early seventeenth century. He was a remarkably secular bookseller – he rarely published sermons, for example, popular and profitable though they were – and his list shows a decidedly international bent, with European histories and European travel books; dictionaries of Italian, Spanish, and Latin; and works translated out of French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Greek, Latin, and neo-Latin. He also developed relationships with English ambassadors abroad, like Sir Dudley Carleton, ambassador to Venice and The Hague, and involved himself in the Italian art trade, as well as dealing in currencies, cloth, seeds, and foodstuffs. He was a regular correspondent of William Trumbull, English agent in Brussels, and a close friend of his fellow stationer John Bill, Sir Thomas Bodley's agent in acquiring books printed abroad. A relatively late entry in the genre, Juan de Santa María's manual of advice to princes, República y policía christiana (first published in Madrid, 1615), was of particular interest in England at this time, as Charles I had set about reforming court manners on the Spanish model. Though no relation to the publisher, the supralibros is likely that of Sir Thomas Pope Blount (1556–1639) of Tittenhanger, Hertfordshire, whose well-travelled son, Sir Henry, was the author of A Voyage into the Levant (1636). Sir Henry was a supporter of Charles I; he attended the king at York and took part in the battle of Edgehill, supposedly being entrusted after it with the care of the young princes, the future James II and Charles II.

Paris. 1632. 12,[146],[14]pp. Small octavo. 18th- century calf, spine gilt, edges stained red. Slight separation at upper front hinge. Leaves washed, titlepage expertly remounted on matching paper. A few unobtrusive marginal repairs in main text, bottom edge of leaves of DICTIONAIRE... expertly restored. Withal, a very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. Sagard was a Recollet missionary who spent 1623-24 in Huronia as a missionary to the Huron nation. His book, based largely on his own experiences and those of his associates, as well as contemporary letters and documents, are considered to be the main authority for the history of the first Recollet mission in Canada in 1615- 29, and the main source for Indian life and relations with the French which does not stem from the Jesuits. "Sagard and Champlain were the first explorers to give any very definite statements about the Huron Indian country and what they had learned from these Indians about the Great Lakes Country" - Greenly. Most of the work is devoted to the life of the Hurons, and has been called "a brilliant, astonishingly precise fresco." The Huron dictionary is the first printed Huron vocabulary, a collection of French expressions translated into Huron, to be used as a manual by traders and missionaries. Sagard assembled it from his own work and those of other missionaries, and it remains "the most complete compilation extant dealing with the old Huron language."

        COMEDIES, HISTORIES, AND TRAGEDIES. Published according to the true Originall Copies. The second Impression

      London Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, and are to be sold at his shop at the signe of the Blacke Beare in Pauls Church-yard 1632 - Second Folio edition of what is generally considered to be the most important work of literature in the English language. Engraved portrait by Martin Droeshout on title page, woodcut ornaments and initials. Folio (335x220 mm), very fine full crimson morocco by Lloyd, the covers beautifully decorated with three gilt fillet lines at the border surrounded by a key rolled border gilt, and with central gilt heraldic device, the spine in compartments fully tooled and elaborately and very handsomely decorated in gilt with superb tooling at the borders of the compartments and with central gilt devices exquisitely decorated in gilt, separated by raised bands gilt stopped and tooled, two compartments lettered in gilt. The turnovers and edges are fully gilt with fillet lines at the edges and elaborate gilt rolled decorative borders at the turnovers. Edges of the leaves with wide borders and virtually untrimmed, gilt An especially handsome, large and very attractive copy in a wonderful state of preservation. Fresh, clean and crisp throughout. The "To the Reader" leaf and title-page are expertly accomplished antique facsimiles on old paper and the final Cymbeline leaf as these, all done many years ago in completely unobtrusive and very skilled workmanship. A RARE AND ESPECIALLY BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE SECOND FOLIO. And a most desirable copy. A Shakespeare folio is one of the most significant books for a collector of literature, and the Second Folio is the earliest copy still generally available to him or her, as most of the First Folios, of course, reside in institutional hands. The second folio is also significant for Milton collectors as it includes, on the Effigies leaf, his first published poem, entitled "An Epitaph on the admirable Dramaticke Poet, W. Shakespeare." The original folio printing of Shakespeare's works in all likelihood owes its existence to two of the Bard's principle actors, Henry Condell and John Heminges. Prior to the first folio there had been only a few "curious and rather shabby" collections of Shakespearian and non-Shakespearian works published under the bard's name. After Shakespeare's death Condell and Heminges dedicated themselves to producing a folio volume of all of his plays that would be accurate and authoritative ".only to keep the memory of so worthy a friend and fellow alive as was our Shakespeare." Their dedication, combined with help from others, eventually led to the publication of the First Folio in 1623. Without the hard work of these friends there is no knowing how many of the plays might have been lost in the years that followed. These two actor's work not only preserved the memory of their great friend but is perhaps the single most important publishing endeavor of English literature. How much the modern English-speaking world owes to these two men will never be calculable. The Second Folio contains JOHN MILTON S FIRST APPEARANCE IN PRINT: an epitaph on Shakespeare in 16 verses, incipit: What neede my Shakespeare for his honour'd bones; it appears on the same page A5r as "Upon the Effigies" in eight verses, incipit: Spectator, this Lifes Shaddow is; To see. The inner form containing these two poems is recorded in several states (in the Bruce copy: "Comicke" in line 3, "Laugh" in line 4, "passions" with ligatured double-s in line 6 of the "Effigies" poem); the outer form contains the title (A2r), whose setting varies according to the publisher in the imprint. Like its predecessor, from which the edition was set page-for-page, the Second Folio has now become extremely elusive in the open market. Copies as beautiful as this are highly desirable. COLLATION:A6*4 (A1r blank, A1v Ben Jonson's verses To the Reader, A2r letterpress title and Martin Droeshout's engraved portrait of the playwright, verso blank, A3 editors' dedication to the Earls of Pembroke and Montgomery, A4r editors' note To the great variety of Readers, verso blank, A5 r verses Upon the Effigies of my worthy Friend, the Author Master Will [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Johannis Leonis Africani. De Africae descriptione. Pars altera.

      Lugd. Batav., Elzevir, 1632. First Elzevir printing, only volume 2, p.387 - p.800, originally published in 1550. 24mo. 800pp. (two volumes bound in one, paginated consecutively). Contemporary full brown calf, spine in 5 compartments, gilt title and decorations. Top of spine and frontcover on the hingings a bit worn.Translated into Latin from the original Italian. Overall a fine copy. Leo Africanus, born Al - Hassan ibn - Wazzani, was born a slave in Granada of African descent. Because of his outstanding literary ability (he had already written a draft of this book in Arabic when he was captured), the Medici Pope Leo X freed him, converted him to Christianity and became his patron. This book, a detailed account of Africa, its trade routes, geography, terrain and people was an exceptionally important source for information on the continent and is generally considered the first book written by a person of primarily African descent. Blockson 101 #1: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history."

        Thaumatographia naturalis.

      Amsterdam Apud Guilielmum Blaeu 1632 - FIRST EDITION. 12mo [xii] 501 [iii]. Roman and Italic letter, woodcut initials and tail-pieces, t.p. with printer’s device of an orrery. Light age browning, otherwise a good clean copy with C17 annotations, in contemporary English calf, covers triple-ruled in blind, spine remounted, a.e.r. FIRST EDITION of Jonston’s most popular work on “admiranda” or wonders of nature organised into ten categories (heaven, earth, and topics relating to meteors, ‘fossils’ or minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, insects and ‘bloodless’ animals, fish, and humans). The work draws heavily from classical sources such as Aristotle, Pliny, and Seneca, but also from the more recent work of Aldrovandi, and in the section on plants includes descriptions of the flora and fauna of the New World, as well as tobacco. Each section is headed by a useful index to its contents, and the work concludes with a poem in praise ofJonston by the poet Venceslaus Clemens. 

John Jonston (1603 - 1675) emigrated from Poland to Scotland in 1622 and studied natural history at St. Andrew’s for four years. He received the degree of Doctor of Physic from both Leyden and Cambridge. Despite the compact size of Thaumaturgia, his earliest work, its wide range of material prefigures his later, large-scale works on Fish, Insects, Birds, and Trees, made possible by his extensive travel through Europe and access to its libraries, as well as first-hand observation.
Venceslaus Clemens (1589 - 1640?), Protestant and prolific Neo-Latin poet, was forced to leave his native Bohemia after the Battle of White Mountain. His Gustavis, printed the same year as the Thaumatographia describes the anguish of exile and praises Gustavus Adolphus and the victory of the Swedish Army at the Battle of Breitenfeld, which Clemens credits as saving the Protestant cause in Europe.

        Concordantiae Bibliorum Hebraicae, nova et artificiosa methodo dispositae, in locis innumeris depravatis emendata, deficientibus plurimis expleta, radicibus antea confusis distinc, & significatione vocum omnium Latina illustratae: ...

      . Accesserunt Novae Concordantiae Chaldaicae omnium vocum, quae Corpore Bibliorum Hebraico contintur: Cum Praefatione, qua Operis usus abunde declaratur, Per Johannem Buxtorfium Fil. Basel: Ludwig König 1632. Folio. (465) leaves. Contp. full vellum with dec. on boards. Upper headband marked of use, left joint cracked; browning and some pages weakly stained. Old name on titlep. (Skat Rördam. 1855). * "Das Werk stellt sich, wie auch aus der Einleitung hervorgeht, als eine verbesserte Auflage der Basler Ausgabe von Isac Natans Bibelkonkordanz vom Jahre 1581 dar. Daneben benutzte Buxtorf wohl auch die Konkordanz des Marius de Calasius, Rom 1621. Die wesentlichen Unterschiede gegenüber jener Vorlage bestehen in der Anordnung nach des Formen innerhalb eines Stammes und in der lateinischen Übersetzungen sowohl jeder Form als auch der einleitenden Erklärung des Stammes." (Prijs, Die Basler hebräischen Drucke, 235). Johs. Buxtorff, der ältere, (1564-1629) war ohne Frage der grösste Kenner des rabbinischen Schriftthums unter den Protestanten. Sein Sohn Johs. Buxtorff (1599-1664) vollendete seines Vaters Werk "Concordantiae ..." ADB III, 668. Jöcher I, 1223. Das lateinisches Titelblatt ist mit einen ornamentalen Einfassung, gezeichnet "SW" (Nagler V,443 "Unbekannter Formschneider"). Both Boxtorf and his son of the same name were professor of Hebrew at Basel University, many of their books were published by Johs. Buxtorf the Elder's son in law, Ludwig König, who in 1615 had aquired the Waldkirch printing office with their rich store of types from the Froben Press, the previous owners. Graesse I,585.

        A True Relation of the Unjust, Cruel and Barbarous Proceedings against the English at Amboyna in the East-Indies, by the Netherlandish Governour & Council There

      The portrait of a British merchant being tortured; the Ambon Massacre and the beginnings of the annexation of Dutch New Amsterdam. 1632. London. Purslowe and Nathaniell Newberry. In 8vo (182 mm x 131 mm). frontispiece + 5 ff. + 38 + 1 ff. + 20 + 1 ff. + 34. Nineteenth century mottled calf by Riviere & Son, rebacked with most of original spine retained, with original lettering pieces on spine. Very good copy internally. An important work, relates the episode whereby the Dutch Governor of Amboyna had a number of English merchants tortured under interrogation regarding a suspected conspiracy to overthrow the fortress. The Portuguese first discovered Amboyna in 1510, although it was not until 1521 that a settlement was founded. In 1600 the Dutch, aided by the natives and encouraged by an apparently ruthless Portuguese treatment towards the natives, secured the island. In 1615 a British settlement was also founded on the other side of the island, where it enjoyed a short life until 1623, when the massacre occurred. Several of the Englishmen did not survive. This work had influence on the start of the Second Anglo-Dutch War and the annexation of Dutch New Amsterdam, present-day New York, was justified with reference to this event. The Relation is comprised of four parts, each with a separate title page. Illustrated with a crude image of a man ?"presumably an English merchant- being tortured by 6 men and two child, burning his feet and armpits with candles, and another one opening him, whilst he is crucified.

Les Essais were first published in 1580 and this translation by John Florio was first published in 1603, our edition having the addition of an index. The engraved title also appears for the first time in this edition, Droeshout being the engraver of the famous portrait of Shakespeare which headed the first folio. "Montaigne (1533 - 1592) devised the essay form in which to express his personal convictions and private meditations, a form in which he can hardly be said to have been anticipated. The most elaborate essay, the "Apologie de Raimond Sebonde," is second to no other modern writing in attacking fanaticism and pleading for tolerance. He finds a place in the present canon, however, chiefly for his consummate representation of the enlightened scepticism of the sixteenth century, to which Bacon, Descartes, and Newton were to provide the answers in the next". (Printing and the Mind of Man page 58). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
